Former President Ronald Reagan (and Discovery Channel’s “Greatest American”) had this to say about Independence Day in 1984:
“We don’t celebrate dependence day on the Fourth of July. We celebrate Independence Day. We celebrate the right of each individual to be recognized as unique, possessed of dignity and the sacred right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. At the same time, with our independence goes a generosity of spirit more evident here than in almost any other part of the world. Recognizing the equality of all men and women, we’re willing and able to lift the weak, cradle those who hurt, and nurture the bonds that tie us together as one nation under God.”
Enjoy the fireworks tonight, everyone. The Disney Magic is having a red, white & blue balloon drop in the main atrium in about 20 minutes!
